For convention planners nationwide, the SMG name carries the brand promise of a first class facility and unparalleled expertise in all aspects of the convention experience. This assurance has earned SMG national agreements from major industry organizations as well as repeat business from event organizers who utilize sites throughout the country.
SMG’s industry presence gives municipal clients exposure through web links, email news blasts, bulk advertising buys in trade publications and participation in major convention planner trade shows that may be prohibitively expensive to buy on their own. Utilizing a full-range of electronic capabilities, including a proprietary online events calendar and booking system, SMG onsite sales directors are able to share leads and co-sell properties. Our partners benefit from the full force of SMG working to send business their way, and events planners gain the ability to check SMG venues and available dates 24/7.
